Patch door glazing refers to a type of door construction in which a glass panel is inserted into a door or frame, typically as a means of allowing natural light to enter a room.
This type of door typically features a wooden or metal frame that surrounds the glass panel, and may include additional features such as weatherstripping or a sill to prevent water infiltration.
Patch glazing is commonly used in residential and commercial architecture, and can be found in a wide variety of styles and designs.
